What the hell? Temp files eating ALL my space!

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I don't know how this happens. Suddenly I lost almost all the space I had on the drive.

I found the file:

402

How is this happening lol? I don't understand how the hell it is possible that suddenly I just got 70GB of data in that folder...

That happened to my parents' computer. I installed CCleaner and it took nearly an hour to finish.

I use it every day on my computer.
Download it here: http://www.filehippo.com/download_ccleaner/

Empty out that Temp folder.

Since when do girls know how to clean up a registry?

Not complaining, I think It's hawt.

What have you been doing lately?

It is p0rn isn't it? whistle.gif


System Maintenance: Click here to see maintenance tips! (Click to show)
CCleaner:
CCleaner has to be the best "cleanup" utility I have ever used, it cleans up all your temp files and cleans your registry better than any other software I know. I have never had an issue with it over the last two years of using it. I have tried many others and CCleaner has come out to be the best. I highly recommend you use this as your sole maintenance cleanup software over everything else.

Download here: (link)

Also there is CCEnhancer which expands CCleaners reach in your system.

Download here: (link)

Disk Cleanup:
This is the integrated Disk Cleanup in Windows 7. I often use this after using CCleaner just in case CCleaner misses anything. Does a good job and I recommend you use it too.
  1. Open the Start Menu, type Disk Cleanup, press Enter
  2. Select your drive you want to "clean"
  3. Check any of the boxes you wish (I check them all)
  4. Click OK
  5. Click "Delete Files"

Empty windows update download cache:
This is a safe and easy way to get rid of any left over windows update files.
  1. Go to: C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download
  2. Delete all of them.

Space Sniffer:
Cool app that lets you see what is taking up your space on your system and manage it.

Oh my god I just found the dirty reason.
Cheat engine caused this!

Can't explain why... I used it in skyrim to accomplish bugged quest.

Look at this: ! ! ! !

242

I think this was caused once because I did a research lately in floating point. Don't ask my why...

I checked forums and changed some stuff to adapt windows with the SSD so it doesn't same temp files into the SSD but I see it wasn't covering everything... I just want that it doesn't happen again. Fast solution would be to not use Cheat engine of course, but I would like to know if there is another way including all of these files!

Can I just delete every thing in there? I see some windows files too...

In reply to the CCleaner solution, I want to find a permanent solution because if it does that every time my SSD is going to die pretty fast!
